News! Listener questions! And I go on a rant about California! And in our main segment, Jim tells us about the history of the Wonders of Life pavilion.
Len Testa starts off this episode by talking about the problems he has with Governor Newsom’s guidelines for the re-opening of California’s theme parks. Jim Hill then looks back on why it took Epcot’s “Wonders of Life” 12 years to move from its initial design phase in 1977 to when this Future World pavilion officially opens its doors back in October of 1989.
Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:
- What a recent survey says about the likely longevity of that miniature golf course which is located right next door to the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve
- How likely are we to see a return of the luggage-right-delivered-to-your-room feature of Disney Magical Express
- What’s significant about WDW reportedly testing virtual queuing for attractions like “The Jungle Cruise” & “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance”
- What does “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” have in common with “Three Men and a Baby”
- Why did the “Incredible Journey Within” attraction scare away many potential sponsors for the Wonders of Life pavilion
